Abstract : A sequence of equations is proposed for the decomposition events of alkyl nitrates, based on the observation that nitrites are produced in substantial amounts. Studies were made of the reactions of ethoxyl radicals (produced by the decomposition of diethyl peroxide at 181 deg C) with ethyl nitrite and NO. The reaction rate between the ethoxyl radicals and NO was much greater than that between the radicals the nitrite.
